THE BURNING MOUNTAIN. Yes, Paounft was prond, rery proud. It was not In vain that she possessed such large eyes, finely arched black eyebrows and a small, aquiline nose. Her mouth, too, though Bomewhnt large, was rosj and well shaped, and when she spoke or laughed her teeth showed like two white rows of shining pearls. Her jet block tresses were bonnd around her head like a coronet, which made the country folks mockingly call her "Prim do Imparat" (the young empress). Her tall figure and -well poised head gare -her BO majestic- ft- bearing that she well merited the sobriquet in question. She was not, hownver, too proud to turn round when Tannas passed by, nor to listen to his compliments when they danced the "Hora" together on Sunday evenings on the Tillage green; but when any allusion was made to this love affair, Paouna grew very red and gave sharp answers to what she considered Impertinent remarks. Many other young peasants In the neighboring village^, as well as in their own, became envious of Tannas, more especially when they learned that he and Paouna were really betrothed. But, alas! Boon a crnel war broke out and Tannas bad to inarch with the army to the banks of the Dntrabe. Poor Pnounn pent up her tears in the presence of strangers, and no one dared to ask her even if she shed them in secret. It seemed very long before news of the army reached her; but when she ~heard the villagers talking of a battle which had taken place, she had to lean for support against the stone cross at the entrance of the village, so sick and giddy did she become. 1'roru that time forth night brought her no repose, and she was compelled' to burn her little lamp, so as not to see the phantom which constantly pursued her — Tannas, covered with wounds, dying or dead. One gloomy- night she was seated on the edge of her bed, her bards crossed on her lap, her eyes wide open looking out into the void, and heeding not footsteps which came stealthily along outside the bouse, when some one tapped" lightly at her window. She sprang to her feet, and, stlfllnct nucream, turned round and tried to penetrate the obscurity. It seemed to her that Taunas was there, and at the lame moment she heard her name softly ^CBllfid^rlLPaOUlift,^Paouna T: <1eniveome cut- to me. Fear nothing; it Is I, Tanims, only Tannas." Paouna had already her hand on the lock of the door, and In an Instant she was outside. Immediately two strong arms clasped her round the waist, but she quickly disengaged herself, saying: "Is it really you, Tannas, or is eomo one playing me a trickf" "It Is no trick, Paouna darling," said he. "See, touch your own ring, and here round my throat is the little sHver imago you gave me. I could contain myself up longer, so I came to see if you were stilPfaithful to me." "Who, then, has sent you away from the army?" she asked. "Why, no one, of course." "No one? and yet yon are hero! The war, then, In endedf" "Oh, no, they are still fighting, but I stole •ecretly awijy for love of you, Paouna." "For love of me," she cried, bursting into a mocking laugh; "did you think, then, that I should bu proud to have a deserter tor my loverf Go away instantly, I im- ploso you." "Is this your love, Paonna? You send mo away to my death; you crush my dearest hopes." "Go' whore you *cJJl, but leave me, and mark well what I say; Never will I become your wife, never will I take for my husband a man_ whom I despise." '(You love another, then?" said he. "No, Tannas, I still love you, and only you; for you only have I watched through all these long and weary nights, but never did the idea suggest itself to me that I loved a coward." Then Paouna hid her face in. her hands and began to weep bitterly; "And I who thought yon would receive me so joyfully, And put me in such *afe hiding," said he in a disappointed tone. "Oh, shame, shame to me," she cried, "that I should be your betrothedl But hear now what I •ay, the Buccgl itself shall burn before I consent to be your wife. " Here the young couple exchanged such angry glances that their eyes gleamed in the obscurity of, the night. -.-.. Suddenly the sky became illumined by a roseate reflection, and when they looked up it seemed as If the summit of the great mountain, the Bucegl, were in flames. The brightness grew more and more Intense, and a red flre seemed to shoot upward from amid a mass of stars. The neighbors ran to their windows and doors, crying out that the forest was on fire, (jhat the mountain was burning. Dogs barked, cocks crowed. Paouna seized tho young man by the shoulder, and giving him a, vigorous push, cried in a low voice, "Go away from here, go and hide your head, or I shall die of shame." Then hastily •he closed the door and extinguished her lamp. lu an agony of fear her eyes followed Tannas creeping along under the shade of the cottages. Little heed gave she when the neighbors called to her to come out and see the miracle of the burning mountain. ;. From that eight Paouna grew pale and thin, and was no longer seen to smile; aha who used to be so fond of jokes and smart speeches gave now but hasty and curt replies. AU day she worked client and pensive, pausing only occasionally to seat herself at th ; edge of the fountain and bathe her burning forehead. Sometimes •he gazed on her own reflection in the water or cast a terrified look up to the heights of the Bucegl mountains. Gradually the rumor spread that Tannas had been seen In the village. There were those who pretended to hare recognized htm by the light of the burning mountain, and bad even heard his voice in conversation with Paouna. When they questioned her as to the truth of this large drops of perspiration stood on her forehead, her lips grew white and she trembled when she answered: "Was not all dark and aUent with us when the Bucegl was in flamesf" The mother of Paouna shook her head, bit her lips and pretended that in the age of wickedness most extraordinary things would come to pass. At length there arrived news from the Danube's banks, news of a fierce strife, of a bloody battle having been fought This time Paouna wag among the last to learn what had occurred, but when it did rearch her ear* ens ran quickly home, mod* op a li tils bun-V'e of linea with a piece of mamaliga (Indian corn paste), end some slices at baked pumpkin and a wooden fiask of water, and Buy leg to her mother, "Have no fear for me, you will •ee me home again very soon," set off to walk her long and weary journey. * * -* o • • Night came over the buttle field, the tUftd and tho dying lay here and there indiscriminately nixed, while horse* *trug- gied in llreir fierce agony Aud tried to get Ojpoa their feet, afiixm*clou» that toe; were ri.ierlfit).

At gth tb" rnnnd moon ahono full on this Bcciie'ot "tiimtny and 1 th« young girl moro easily continued her task, turning now on this side, now on that, kneeling here and there—seeking, seeking some one wearing a little metal image tied around bis stained and swollen throat—some one with a ring which she could readily recognize encircling his stiffened finger. The cam? was now plunf*Ml in (flppp, but still guided by the moon's rays Paouna pursued her weary course amidst the dying and the dead. Sometimes she gently called, •Tannas, Tannas," and occasionally a feeble sigh answered her appeal; then she wonld hopefully approach, but aft«r searching from whence the sigh came, and giving water to drink, and carefully examining in vain, she shook her head and went wearily and sorrowfully on her way. At last the moon disappeared, and the cold gray dawn replaced its friendly beams, when Pnouna perceived something shining In tho distance. She ran hastily along and found herself beside a seeming corpse, partly stripped of clothing, but with his stiffened hand clasped firmly round some object suspended from his throat. ^)n one of the fingers wasT theTrinjf which she knew BO well, and crying "Tannas"," she fell faint and exhausted by the side of a blood stained and scarcely recognizable figure: After a few momenta she came to herself again, and set to work to wash the toco of her lost lover. Through her tears she could perceive that a sword cut had traversed the eyes and Injured- the nose: but, oh, joy I sure sign of life, tho blood began again to flow. Speedily she moist: ened the parched lips, and bound the poor wounded head. Tannas sighed heavily, and hearing his name he sought with his hands to find the face of his benefactor. • "My Paounal" said he, in a feeble voice, "leave me alone to die. I am good for nothing more on earth, for I am quite 1 blludl" "Yes, yes!" cried Paouna, "you ar emy beloved, you are my betrothed husband, and, if the good God only wills it; you will, soon ba my husband in renlity. Only re- [ main quiet now; you must rest and l>e' silent while I watch by you." • * * % * *. • ' Many long weeks have expired since that cold gray morning dawn, long weeks, during which, by night and day, Paouna has watched by the hospital bedside of : Tannas, she herself taking no rest, content only: to be always near hlm-^-near him, her hetol .Then came, a summer' day, when two pilgrims were seen coming up the village road—a blind man wearing a soldier's cloak, the medal of honor on his breast, and led with tender solicitude by a young girl, who said, as old friends came out' to greet them, with a prond Btnilo on her lips: "Do you see htm? This is my Tannas, my betrothed, my hero. See the sign of honor on his breast." "And on hla countenance also," sighed Tannas. —Never was such a marriage celebrated in the Village f Numbers of peasants came from^the "surrounding hamlets, bringing their offerings of nuts and white cakes and delicious dulceata (a fruit sweetmeat). Many pitied, others sympathized with Paouna, because she was marrying a blind man; but she answered joyfully to each and all: "I am proud of him, proud to nave a hero for my husband, and I have strength and will enough to work for us both."

SKILLFUL FOUR LEGGED MINERS. Canning Gopher* And How They Boro Tunnels—^Wher*' They Carry Food. In appearance, the gopher, or pouched rat, as it is sometimes called, resembles a short tailed and short legged rat, with a large head and protruding teeth. Their cheeks attract attention, having the appearance of being pushed out or stuffed with something, but this Is owing to the fact that our miner has two very strange receptacles, one on each side, separate and distinct from the month, -little carpet bags we might call them, each lined with fur, and large enough to enable me to thrust fat my\ thumb to the first joint. Pouches, they are sometimes and often called, and as to their use, there seems to bo a diversity of qpinlon, The front claws'of this miner are extremely large 1 and powerful'and enable it to construct tunnels with remarkable rapidity.' When once beneath the surface they construct their .mines in.cvery direc- tign, with no "great': regularity! but evidently with the idea of forming a labyrinth that will carry off floods. That this la successful I have frequently Demonstrated-, by ' turning a large stream of water 1 into -the mine. It would run In wlthont overflowing for a long time, and I have never succeeded in forcing one out by this means. ' It would naturally be supposed that such miners would place their nest at some distant or deep lead in the mine, but the reverse is the rule, the warm nest of blta of weed being formed Very near the surface, from which'different'mines lead away, taking any water that might come In. It might be assumed that the bags or pouches were used to carry out the dirt and stones.', removed,. but, curiously enough, they use them for exactly the reverse, and for carrying seeds or food. Aa soon as a gopher makes up its mind that its mining operations have been observed, it invariably crawls out, or partly out, of the mine or burrow, and, filling Its pouches with sticks and sand, backs quickly In, its tall seemingly guiding it to the hole with unfailing 'regularity, the animal never turning, but always backing, and moving no rapidly that it seems almost like the curious lizard that runs one way as well as another. The soil and material carried in this way id deposited at the entrance of the mine, and if the animal thinks that danger is imminent it bites off earth at the mouth of the burrow. Having done this for a few -mo- menta it disappear! and a second later the opening closes, and a close examinv tlon shows a quivering of the earth and a repeated pushing up as If some one was patting St from below. In short,' the mine has been filled np> from below and 10 skillfully that fi-w would notice it But where is the miner? Not off in •ome deep lead hutj'dreds of, feet away, but near at hand, In a tunnel quite at the surface, that has a port hole about as large as a pea. Through this "port hole" the wily miner tnk>a observations, and the tunnel will not be reopened for weeks if it is watched. The gopher comas out generally at n I gh t to feed, and carries seeds in its ponches, but the sand and gravel that is removed trom the mine is never taken in this way, Being pushed up by the animal's breast and forefeet.
